Bronco Billy

Synopsis: Bronco Billy McCoy is the proud owner of a small traveling Wild West show. But the business isn't doing too well: for the past six months he hasn't paid his employees. At a gas station he picks up Antoinette, a stuck-up blonde from a rich family, who was left behind without a penny by her husband on their wedding night. Billy likes her looks and hires her as his assistant. She seems to bring them bad luck and the business gets even worse. In these hard times she loses her reluctance and starts to like her new way of life... and Bronco Billy.

Ladies and gentlemen...

boys and girls...

we welcome you this evening...

to the greatest, the most authentic...

Wild West Show in America!

So hang on...

to your hats and boots...

or your loved one's hand.

Let us take you back to a time...

when the cowboys and Indians

roamed our great land!

And now, for our first act this evening...

Chief Big Eagle...

the great-great grandson of

the great Apache Indian chief, Geronimo...

will perform his legendary

Rattlesnake Dance...

that no white man has ever seen before!

And that's for sure!

Chief Big Eagle!

I'm awful scared, Bronco Billy.

Everybody's a little nervous

their first night in show business.

You just do what we rehearsed

and everything will be fine.

Yeah, but I'm awful scared, Bronco Billy.

Take a swig of this,

it'll make you feel great.

The Chief got bit again by the rattlesnake.


Running Water took him to their truck

and gave him a shot of Doc's Snake Bite.

I don't know why he can't just do

the Great Apache Flaming Arrow Act.

Didn't you tell him

to use the gopher snake?

I did, but he's a proud Indian.

The only good Indian is a dead Indian.

Let's go, girl.

How about it?

How about a big hand

for Lasso Leonard James?

The greatest rope artist in the West!

And now, ladies and gentlemen...

it is my privilege and honor...

to present to you this evening...

the greatest trick shooter...

the fastest draw...

the toughest hombre...

the one and only Bronco Billy McCoy!

How about it?


Thank you, folks.

Thank you, my little pardners out there.

Always great to be back in Montana

and see all of our friends.

Now I'd like to introduce you

to my new assistant.

It's her first night in the big tent.

So how about a big Montana welcome

for Miss Mitzi Fritts.

Throw up the plates.

Throw up another plate.

How about it, ladies and gentlemen?

Bronco Billy!

And now I want all of you settlers...

and all of you little pardners...

to sit tight...

because Bronco Billy

is getting ready to do...

his death-defying

"Wheel of Fortune" shootout!

Are those real bullets?

It's a special buckshot.

It doesn't go too far.

But don't worry, I never miss.

Miss Mitzi, would you like a blindfold?

No, Bronco Billy.

You're the best shot in the Old West.

Very well, but I will wear one.

Are you ready, Miss Mitzi?

Yes, Bronco Billy.

All right.

Spin the wheel.

How much money we got in the kitty?

$19 and some change.

Nobody can ever say we're getting rich.

I'll just be glad when we get

to the next town.

That's good, too. But, I...

If something's sticking in your craw,

why don't you just spit it out?

Me and the boys have been with you

down the road through hell and high water.

If there's a fight, we

stick together, right?

We know you've done the same for us.

Doc, if it's about that little gal...

you know how hard it is

to find a good assistant nowadays.

You tell the boys that

I'll find us an angel...

who will make us proud

to have her in the show.

Heck, they understand

about all that, Billy, but...

What the hell are you talking about?

You know the boys love you and so do I...

but unless we get paid, we have to quit

because it's been six months.

What's going on?

Get out of my truck,

you yellow-bellied sidewinders!

- It's raining!

- Get out!

What in tarnation is he

all heated up about?

I just told him we was all gonna quit

unless we got paid!

Why'd you tell him while it was raining?

Get out of my truck, you ingrates!

- Don't you swear at my wife, Boss!

- Get out of my truck!

We never should have elected you

to tell him in the first place!
